Michelle Obama in South Africa- meets Madiba

What a lovely picture! Good to see recent images of Madiba.

Our First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters are visiting South Africa and Botswana this week on an official state visit along with the first granny. The Obama's met with  Nelson Mandela at his home in Houghton, South Africa.

The first lady gave a moving speech at Regina Mundi Church in Soweto. Memorable quotes from her speech:

  • " I want to be an example for girls in my country and beyond" - Michelle Obama in Soweto.
  • "So today, I want you to know as you work to lift up your families, communities and your world know that you are never alone. You are joined with young people all over the world. I want you to say with one voice YES WE CAN!!" Michelle Obama in Soweto
